How a season is unfolding for a tennis player?
I'm tired of reading lately about how tired some players are during november's WTF.
As if the body is reseting itself during Christmas and, voila, Djoko, Rafa, Murray and other grinding baseliners are suddenly back to full power after eating some pork (sorry, this is the tradition in my country...we eat pig meat at Christmas).
So, since I don't know any professional tennis player, I must ask all of you. How it's possible to be tired after not playing for 6 weeks after the USOpen and, at the same time, be fresh after 3 and a half - 4 weeks free time during the winter holidays?
Is it the way tennis players are managing their time or it's just tards finding excuses for their favourites?
And no, tards, it's not necessarily abt the top dogs. It's just out of curiosity. For instance, I know Federer is taking two or three 4-5 weeks off during each year, except for the winter holidays (post Australia, post Wimbledon, post USOpen, not always all 3 of those).
Taking that into account, how can we say that the players are tired during WTF?
Is there any time of the year when players are resting completely for more than 2 weeks?
Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?
ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).
